Ann Arbor, MI; Detroit, MI: The Ann Arbor News; Gannet/ The Detroit News, Inc., 1974; 1994. First Printings. Loose Folded Sheets. His image, life & legacy greatly effect & haunt the history of America during the 20th century & beyond: Richard Milhous Nixon (1913-1994), thirty-seventh President of the United States. Here are relics of two milestones in Nixon's life & American history: (1) The Ann Arbor News issue of Thursday, August 8, 1974 (front section only), with headline "Nixon Resigning: President Will Go On TV At 9 Tonight, Ford To Take Oath On Friday." With additional articles headed "Sen. Brooke Urges Immunity For Nixon" & Ford Delays His Trip To Meet With Nixon," contemporary images of Nixon & about-to-become-President Gerald Ford on front page; many interior articles with emphasis on Nixon & Ford's visits to & relations with Ann Arbor. (2) The Ann Arbor News issue of Friday, August 9, 1974 (complete in three sections) with front page headline "Ford Takes Oath Of Office," Front page also includes articles headed "Nixon Bids Staff A Tearful Goodbye" & "Ford's First Day In Office Starts Out Like Any Other," images of Ford being sworn in as President by Chief Justice Burger with wife Betty in background, Nixon bidding his staff & country goodbye with thumbs-up gesture & wife Pat, daughter Tricia in background. With many articles & images throughout all three sections, again with much emphasis on local Ann Arbor reactions & connections to the events. (3) The Detroit News, Thursday, April 28, 1994 issue (front section only) with front page headline "A Nation Remembers" about the funeral of Nixon the previous day (he had died on April 22). With color image of former presidents Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford & their wives paying their respects accompanying article; several related articles & images throughout section. Real-time relics of two milestones in the life of President Richard M. Nixon- his resignation that culminated the Watergate debacle; & his passing- though never from our collective consciousness. All in fine condition with only (inevitable) browning of pulp-quality sheets with attendant mild odor; mild-to-moderate wear & some small folds, closed tears at all edges & corners. Fine.
